Under no circumstances should you withhold your rent. That is your responsibility as a tenant. If you are sure that they are drug dealers, why didn’t you call the police on them? The landlady would have been scared to evict them – she’s a lady and they’re drug dealers! (according to you). So yeah, your landlady can evict you. Judging on where you live, do you have a not-so-good credit score? If you get evicted, that will pull your credit score down a few notches.
